A significant component of HCASA’s systemic advocacy and policy role has been to ensure and promote the consumer voice to influence and shape government and health policy. In its final two years HCASA made formal submissions to more than twenty state and national policy drafts. To ensure that consumer voices are heard, HCASA conducted consumer surveys, focus groups, workshops and informal meetings and interviews to gather consumer perspectives and responses to these submissions.

HCASA consulted the Consumer Advocates Network, broader consumer stakeholders and mailing lists, consumer and community organisations and groups and the members of Consumer Advisory Committees across South Australia to inform these submissions.
